The most Superior campground amenity

We’ve camped at spots with golf courses, mini-golf, pools, rivers, tubing, boating, kayaking, waterslides, horses, wagon rides, theatre, live music and, yes, pet shows.

But our most Superior campground amenity (so far): the biggest, deepest, coldest, most dangerous of the Great Lakes. Lake Superior!

It was literally our back yard for 5 glorious days of our annual Kind family camping trip. Bonus: We had a bigger, deeper, warmer and more fun group than ever, when the Day clan from Illinois (some via South Africa) joined us!

More posts later on our other North Shore adventures, but for now, some images of this Superior amenity.

All just steps from our campsites at Burlington Bay Campground … Ahhh …

Our last night there, as the campfire turned to coals and everyone tucked in, Greg and I took a hike to the point under the Super Moon. It was a little scary (okay, a lot), but so beautiful. Thanks, Lake Superior, for amazing memories…
